The group addresses the following products:
- Lift Tables
- Dock Levellers
- Tail Lifts for Vehicles
The Product Group aims to promote the discussion of CEN standards, draft standards, proposed amendments, etc. between those manufacturers, from different EU member states, that are not directly involved in the standardisation activities. The PG will allow more manufacturers to understand the issues, offer opinions, suggest changes, etc. that may improve the standards and increase the overall industry knowledge.
- Plenary Meeting (every two years)
- General Meeting (meets as required)
Companies actively involved in the Product Group
